Via TMZ Sports:
Jalen Garcia is a teenage Houston Astros super fan who has been bravely battling Osteosarcoma — a type of bone cancer — since he was 13, according to the Laredo Morning Times.
The 25-year-old shortstop and his fiancee, Daniella Rodriguez, met the big-time fan at a hospital in Houston on Friday … and Correa was so moved by the visit, he wanted to do something extra special that Garcia would never forget.
“Next home run I hit will be for you,” Correa promised Garcia. “When you see me pointing, I’ll be pointing at you.”

This isn’t going to make the home run any easier for Yankees fans to swallow, but you better believe people looking for a feel good story are going to eat this up.
